1. Value Your Trade

If you're preparing to sell your used car on your own or to a dealership, one of the first things you need is accurate information about your vehicle's value. After all, you wouldn't want to estimate its value too low yourself and get less cash in the sale than you could.

Use our simple Value Your Trade tool to get an estimate of your vehicle's worth. It only takes moments to input your car's information and receive expert-backed advice that can put a good chunk of cash in your pocket or give you a nice deposit for your next ride.

2. Get the Right Offer

You can avoid the work that comes with meeting up with countless potential buyers and getting offers that fall through. At our dealership, you can get a fair offer for your ride that's based on our professional experience with cars.

You don't even have to come to our dealership right away to get an offer from us, either. Simply use our online KBB® Instant Cash Offer tool. Enter your car's information and you'll instantly receive an offer from our dealership to buy your car.

3. Get Scheduled Maintenance

Getting the best offer for your used car will require you to do a few things to help it show in the best possible light. This will include getting any upcoming scheduled maintenance done to keep the vehicle running in its best condition.

Bring it in to our service center, if you like, and we'll whip it into shape with an oil change, tire rotation, new wiper blades, and anything it needs. These small, routine maintenance items can make all the difference, helping your engine purr like a kitten and your car shine like a diamond when you sell.

4. Complete Minor Repairs

If your vehicle requires minor repairs, like a tire patch, a small paint touchup, or a charge for your AC, then it may be in your best interest to have these taken care of before selling.

These items can be relatively easy and inexpensive to fix, yet they can have a cumulative effect of tarnishing your car's image when you're trying to sell it. We can help to spruce up your ride with minor repairs. Our parts center also has what you need if you plan to fix these kinds of things on your own.

 5. Clean and Detail Your Ride

There's nothing like a squeaky-clean car that's been buffed and shined to perfection. When you're ready to sell your ride, be sure to give it a good cleaning inside and out. Having it detailed to restore some of that like-new luster will make sure your vehicle looks its most impressive and help you fetch the best possible offer.
